I believe that Aloha United Way used to be a good organization with a solid foundation, good leadership, and a strategic vision for its future. Under its current leadership, however, AUW has foundered. It has lost some major corporate donors, and most likely it will continue to lose major sponsors, to the point that I fear it will no longer be able to sustain itself as a non-profit.

To any individual considering making a donation to AUW, I urge you to take a closer look. AUW cannot tell you how the funds it raises are really helping the community. You will be better off donating directly to the charity of your choice rather than giving it to an agency with such a vague mission and an eroding support base.
